Stevenson Elementary
Welcome From the Principal
Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians:

Welcome to R. E. Stevenson Elementary School.  As the new principal of Stevenson, it is my sincere pleasure and honor to become a member of this great school community.  I look forward to working with the dedicated staff to provide a child centered educational experience for all of our students.

Before joining the Stevenson family, my professional career was entirely within the Todd County School District.  I was an elementary classroom teacher for 17 years and taught virtually every grade level from kindergarten through fifth grade.  I was an Assistant Principal for two years and have been an Instructional Supervisor for the past four years.  I am pleased and very excited to be back at the elementary level and look forward to the day-to-day interactions with students as well as parents/guardians.  My philosophy is simple.  We as educators at Stevenson will do everything we do based solely on what is in the best interest of the individual child.  I believe that it is important to foster respectful relationships between all members of our learning community, students, parents/guardians, and teachers alike.  It is my expectation that we build a culture where communication is key and respect and cooperation are the norm.

As we move into a new school year, I look forward to the fun we are going to have together but also realize that we have challenges ahead.  With the understanding that all students can and will learn, we accept those challenges and will work diligently to make sure all of our students are successful.

Lastly, I want to encourage all school community partners, especially parents/guardians to become involved and engaged in our students' education.  We want you in our building and need your help to ensure that our students have a successful elementary experience and are prepared for the next level.  So please, ask your child's teacher, principal, guidance counselor, etc. what you can do to be a part of Stevenson's support system for our students.

If you have any questions regarding opportunities to get involved or any other matter, do not hesitate to email or call the school at 270-726-8425.

Thank you for your commitment to your child's education.

Debbie Brown
Principal

Stevenson Book Fair

Stevenson Elementary School hosted another successful book fair the last week of January. Nearly three thousand dollars in books were purchased by Stevenson students, families, and staff. Some of the favorites purchased were Wimpy Kid books, Pete the Cat, and anything about sharks. This was the first fair hosted by Sherry Bouldin that customers could shop online. Online shopping closed February 11 and those orders will be shipped to SES very soon. Mrs. Bouldin will see that anyone who ordered online will get their purchases.

The SES library hosts a book fair twice a year. Funds raised from the book fair are used to order books and materials for classroom and library use. The yearly BookFlix subscription is paid for with these funds as well. You may be familiar with this website, as students can access this site from home. The website features fiction and non-fiction pairings of books. The fiction selection is a video and the non-fiction selection is an ebook. Games are also a part of the website. If you haven’t seen the website, you may visit by clicking on BookFlix . The username is restevenson and the password is bookflix. Check it out and see what you think.

Winter Olympics
 

SES Winter Olympics

 

Friday, February 28 was a busy day at Stevenson Elementary – we hosted the first ever SES Winter Olympics. Students that had earned the behavior reward for February had the privilege of participating in the First Annual SES Winter Olympics. Coach Davenport was very creative in coming up with ways to simulate winter sports. Scooters combined with tumble mats equaled a bobsled - the favorite event of the day, by the way. Paper plates on the bottom of shoes were all that was needed for speed skating. Brooms and balls from a ball pit were used for the curling event. Homeroom teachers received medals for their class’s performance in the sporting events.

 Some of the behavior rewards this school year have included the watermelon picnic, hot chocolate and movie day, and ice cream sandwiches.  This event, however, was the best so far and it will be very difficult to top. It took the effort of all of the related arts team (art, music, p.e., library, guidance, GT) and many others to pull this event off. The students had fun, the teachers had fun, and the “Olympic Committee” had fun. The planned behavior reward event for the month of March is pizza and a movie!
